Over active baby anyone?

In my last week and for some reason rather than slowing down it's movements the baby has been kicking/punching/generally fighting around in there......is it likely to be distressed in anyway?

i just posted on the 'how to make your baby move' thread
ds1 fought his way out of me, much to the raised eyebrows of the midwifery team, who assured me that 'normally' they quieten down during labour/ when there's little room. ds1 was just fed up of being squashed and was intent on making more room.
he was fine. just wild. it made me feel really quite queasy - i do feel for you!
not long now!
think movements are much reduced or non-existent for baby in distress.

thanks that puts my mind at rest a little, wa beginning to worry it had got itself in a state .......is he still as active now?

My dd1 was very active in the womb. She still is now aged four and a half!

Generally I thought movements were a good thing, not a sign of things going wrong.

he's 6.
he will sit still for 'star wars', but otherwise has to leap up and down off the sofa.
buy a door bouncer, then a baby trampet, and then a huge trampoline at the earliest possible convenience.
enjoy! grin

I am 38 weeks and yes, mine goes like crazy grin
DH got freaked out last night, he was lying next to me in bed, and had the bump against his back. DS was doing his usual cartwheeling and DH kept asking me how I could stand it... !

could be depending on what you are eating/drinking. cold drinks or sweet things can give them a sugar rush! smile

Kirky prepare yourself for a livewire!!! My DS1 was the BIGGEST fidget and seemed to never stop moving - and he is nearly 5 and still the same way!

I think some kids are just chilled, and some are livewires wink make the most of sleeping whilst you can!

Good luck with the birth

I know what you mean about being alien baby....I was convinced they were meant to slow down in the last few weeks, maybe they arejust inspired by the constant olympic coverage that my bf has got on telly!

DS was like this. It didn;t change post-birth either. DC2 is gearing up to be another kicker and wriggler and I'm already expecting the worst wink

Yep - mine is definitely practising his/her tumble turns like the swimmers!
